BOSS DD-8 Digital Delay - Sound Examples


collapse expand iconDescription

BOSS reinvents delay once again with the DD-8, a loaded pedal that delivers the most wide-ranging and feature-rich delay in the BOSS compact series. Eleven modes provide delay colors from basic to exotic, plus an onboard looper offers unlimited overdub capability. For maximum versatility in a minimum amount of space, there's no better delay stomp than the DD-8.

A Plethora of Pristine Echoes

Equipped with a diverse selection of delays, the DD-8 packs impressive sonic range into one small pedal. Clean digital delays, vintage analog and tape types and modulation echo are available, plus specialty delays like shimmer and reverse. There's a new Warm type for softer echo tones and a +RV type that blends delay and reverb together. The DD-8 delivers ambient swells and textures with the Warp mode, as well as glitchy rhythmic effects with the new GLT type.

Immersive Stereo Sound

Everything sounds bigger and better in stereo and the DD-8 delivers with full stereo I/O support and three output modes. The default setting provides independent delays, with normal delays on Output A and long delays on Output B. There's also a panning mode for ping-pong delay effects and a wide stereo mode for enhanced spatial depth.

Hands-Free Expression

The DD-8 offers extensive real-time delay options to bring your music to life. You can tap in tempos with the onboard pedal switch and control the Warp and GLT modes for unique expressive effects. Adding one or two optional footswitches unlocks more creative possibilities, like on-demand tap tempo, extended looper control and a Twist effect for soaring echo sounds. An expression pedal provides continuous control of level, feedback or delay time—or all at once.

Built-in Looper and Smart I/O

The DD-8's looper mode offers up to 40 seconds of recording time to create on-the-fly backing tracks and ambient layers. The DD-8's inputs and outputs have smart functionality, allowing you to set the pedal for any application by connecting cables in different ways. A variety of mono and stereo connections are supported, including discrete dry and effect outputs for wet/dry setups.
